the irs scandal that broke on friday, this irs scandal that president obama discussed today while standing next to david cameron in the white house. the scandal is about how the irs handled that huge influx of new organizations applying for tax exempt status while also engaged in some degree of political activity under this farcical part of the tax code. starting friday, reports have surfaced that the irs and handling these types of claims singled out groups that had the word tea party or word patriots in their name. and while that might reasonably be a way to find groups that were actually mostly interested in political activity rather than social welfare, it is not fair to apply extra irs scrutiny and questioning to those groups who are obviously engaged in political activity on the right if you are not also applying that scrutiny to groups who are engaged in political activity on the left. it is the imbalance, right? and thus far, we have no evidence that they were applying equal scrutiny to groups on the left side of the ideological spectrum. the irs official who on friday apo
